Something like that... it's not a tivo.. it's a dedicated, digital,
vcr. I have a couple of them
on my network. It can be activated via a command sent from my mythtv
box. Instead of
manually running the command... I'm trying to find out if there is a
way to automate the
process via the myth scheduler.
